Local Food Directories
USDA's Local Food Directories help you locate farmers markets, on-farm markets, CSAs, and food hubs. The directories are managed and operated by the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), a USDA agency with the core mission of facilitating the fair and efficient marketing of U.S. agricultural products.
To better connect farmers and buyers, and enhance awareness of available local food sources, USDA is creating three new Local Food Directories for community-supported agriculture operations (CSAs), food hubs and on-farm markets by building on the popular and comprehensive National Farmers Market Directory.
USDA is currently requesting that managers and owners of local food entities enter their business information in the new directories. If you operate a local food enterprise, please click the “Add or Update a Listing” button to enter your business information for your CSA, food hub or on-farm market in the directories.
Once a sufficient number of operations have been listed in the directories, they will be available for public viewing. Household shoppers and wholesale food buyers will be able to quickly identify nearby suppliers of local food, and producers and distributors of local foods to will be able to take advantage of emerging opportunities in both direct-to-consumer and wholesale markets.
Each directory will provide vital information about listed enterprises, including a mapped location, operating hours, months of operation, the types of products available, number of farmers at each market and the accepted forms of payment.
